Good sized rooms, we had a Superkingsize bed - the only one we had all our tour. Great breakfast in the conservatory - a fruit and cereal buffet, followed by a freshly cooked 'Yorkshire' breakfast.
Just 5 minutes walk from the museums and 8 minutes from the shops.
Good restaurants near by. Warrens have an internet station where you can download email and surf the web...for free!!!!
Warrens will not let you smoke in their house though, there is an area where you can sit outside.
I would stay again
Unique Quality: Internet access, Private Car Park, Minster Views from some rooms, Friendly Atmosphere, Great Breakfast
Directions: 300 yards from the City Walls on the same side of the City as the Racecourse. You dont want to stay right in the City centre, it is very, very , very noisy on a night.
We were given a great welcome by Richard and Jenny on our arrival.
The outside of the building had a great display of hanging baskets and window boxes and as you go through the house there are more fresh flowers.
The reception area is pannelled and looks better in real life than on their photos, they have a drinks licence and for once we could enjoy a drink in the hotel without paying a huge premium. They are completely non-smoking in the building so I had to sit outside under the loggia to enjoy a smoke, but Richard turned on the patio heater so at least it was warm.
We never tried the food in the hotel as there are restaurants everywhere, but I saw some of the food coming out of the kitchen and it looked very good, but a bit Yorkshire (huge portions). All food is served in the conseratory, which is a modern bistro style.
Our room was a four poster with views over the roof tops toward the Minster and was very romantic, the second night Richard arranged Champagne and Chocolates for the room.
We could walk into town in about 5 minutes meaning that I could leave my car in their car park all weekend and not even have to look at it until Sunday morning.
I was very surprised by what I found in Warrens, firstly it is a B&B but feels more like a friendly hotel, I was amazed at how well presented the building is on the inside as it looks quite small from the outside. We paid about £8 more than we normally do when staying in B&B's and it was worth every penny. We will be back again.
Unique Quality: Richard and Jenny used to travel for years until they bought Warrens and say that they have a wish list of all the things they wanted and are putting them in here. Warrens is a B&B but has trouser presses, a bar, serves hot and cold meals, private car park - which is free and offers internet and email access. In the reception area there is even a wireless lan to connect to your laptop... and this is a B&B and what these two people dont know about York is not worth knowing - trust me if you want to know anything about York just ask them.
Directions: Just 300 metres from the City walls ( the same side of the City as the Racecourse)
